Development along the 14th Street corridor continues, and a new residential building on 14th and W Streets NW may soon join the long list of ongoing projects. UrbanTurf first reported on the plans earlier this month.
At last month’s ANC 1B meeting, Valor Development introduced potential plans for the northwest corner of 14th and W Streets NW, a space currently occupied by a parking lot and an old two-story building. The concept includes 25 residential units (ranging from 500 to 1,100 square feet) and a fast-casual dining establishment.
The project is across the street from the much larger 14W Jefferson, 300,000-square foot project, where work is well underway. A Perseus Realty project, it will have 231 rental apartments, an all-new 44,000 square foot YMCA (on the 1300 block of W Street with a pool), and more than 10,000 square feet of ground-level retail space.
Valor Development has a number of projects (new and rehabs) in the area, including the Aston at 14th and R NW, 1617 Swann NW and 7th and P NW.
